Avène Tolérance Extreme & Eau Thermale Spring Water

avene-termalnavoda-notino

Today I have prepared a review of two Avène products – a moisturizing face cream and thermal water. The thermal water has been in my skincare routine for two years now and the face cream is new in my skincare collection.


Avène Tolérance Extreme is a soothing and moisturizing cream for sensitive and intolerant facial skin – I chose the rich version, and there is an emulsion that’s lighter than this one. I chose this cream because it contains a minimum of ingredients, it has only seven ingredients that are suitable for sensitive skin. I don’t normally have sensitive skin, but my skin just became extremely dehydrated during my stay at home and from the three moisturizers I currently rotate – none of them gave me relief.

The cream is formulated without any preservatives, parabens or perfumes, thus greatly reducing the possibility of skin irritation. The texture is something between a rich and a gel cream, but it is a non-greasy cream that does not leave the skin feeling oily. It hasn’t clogged my pores and my skin looks slightly matte when I apply the cream. The packaging is very practical and hygienically made. When the bottle is pressed, the pump that pushes out the product is lifted and immediately returned so that the cream is always sterile and bacteria do not have access to the cream.

Body Care with Dove Products

notino-dove

I noticed some new Dove products on Notino, so I decided to try them out and write my impressions. I really like Dove products, I often buy their shower gels because they are affordable, yet very high quality and they do not dry out my skin.


Dove Exfoliating Body Scrub Crushed Macadamia & Rice Milk really thrilled me. The scrub removes dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and silky after use. The exfoliating particles are gentle and not at all rough on the skin.

The smell is divine and it reminds me of ice cream, my whole bathroom smells like this product after showering. You get a quantity of 225 ml, which is will last for a long time because you only need very little for one use, even for the whole body.dove-bodyscrub

Home Spa with FOREO UFO 2

foreo-smartmask-ufo2

A few months ago, I introduced FOREO, a Swedish brand that produces skincare devices and products, as well as their smart skin cleansing device – FOREO LUNA mini 3. Now I got the opportunity to try their new FOREO UFO 2, a powerful mask & light therapy treatment device.


FOREO UFO 2 is designed with the goal of providing a facial treatment in 90 seconds, equal to the one you would get at a beauty salon. With longer use of this device, more hydrated, plumped, firmer skin with less wrinkles and more glow is expected. This device combines advanced smart mask technology with LED light therapy and thermo therapy, cryotherapy and the use of T-sonic pulsations, which results in a more beautiful and radiant complexion.

The treatment lasts 90 seconds and the procedure can be repeated, if necessary. During the treatment the app plays relaxing music and that’s exactly why I had the feeling that I was really in the spa and not at home in my bathroom. After the end of the treatment, it’s necessary to remove the mask from the device and rinse off the device under warm water. Fear not, the UFO 2 is waterproof, so there is no worry that it will be damaged by water. foreo-ufo2-smartmask

Byphasse Moisturizing Sorbet Serum

byphasse-hydratant-serum

Skin hydration is very important to me, especially now that I spend a lot of time at home. I do everything I can to prevent skin dehydration, drinking lots of water helps, I also have moisturizing serums in my skincare routine that help in achieving that plumped skin.


Two months ago, I started using Byphasse Sorbet Serum, which provides additional hydration and nourishment to the skin. In addition to hyaluronic acid, this serum also contains highly nourishing ingredients such as peptides, minerals and amino acids that actively combat skin aging and dull complexion.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in our body, and as we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases, so it can be found in the various products we apply to make up for the loss of moisture and skin elasticity. Hyaluronic acid gives that plumped skin look and improves skin elasticity, it’s suitable for all skin types.

It needs to be applied to moist skin so that it can penetrate deeper into the skin and give it hydration. Applying to dry skin can cause side effects and dry out the skin as hyaluronic acid will not pull moisture from the outside surroundings but from the skin itself. After applying the serum, the moisture needs to be locked with moisturizer to prevent skin dehydration and transdermal water loss.byphasse-sorbet-serum

Ever since I started to use this product, I have noticed that I don’t have a single dry part on my face, so-called dry patches. My skin is not dehydrated and my makeup goes on so smoothly. The skin is radiant, looks healthy and nourished. The serum comes in a 50 ml plastic container with a dropper. It has a runny texture that is quickly absorbed into the skin and it beautifully prepares the skin for application of other products.

It contains no parabens, sulfates or alcohol, but it does contain perfumes that can be potentially irritating to the skin. It has a pleasant rose scent, but because of that smell, I feel like I’m applying ice cream on my face, not a moisturizing serum. This is the only reason why I would not buy this product again.

It costs about 4 euros, which is really good for a 50 ml serum. With daily use for the past two months, I have used up half of the serum. Since it has such a runny texture, I take two drops and that’s enough for me to cover my entire face.byphasse-hydratant-serum


-Yes or no?-

Of all the moisturizing serums I’ve tried, I have to say that I was very impressed with this Byphasse Sorbet serum. The quantity is great, it’s affordable and suitable for everyone’s pocket, but I’m not sure if where it can be bought.

Byphasse products are available in our local drugstores, but I’m not sure for this particular product as I bought it in a Spanish drugstore. My skin really looks good since I started using it, but I don’t think I would buy repurchase it because of the perfume. I do love the smell of rose, but this is too much even for me.

If I you ask me, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid is a better choice because it contains no perfume, one is already waiting for me in the drawer and I will switch to that again after I finish this product. Elizavecca hyaluronic acid with niacinamide did not thrill me as well because it didn’t deliver as promised so I prefer to use hyaluron acid and niacinamide in separate vials until I find something that works for me.

What has been your experience with Byphasse products?

Home Spa and Hair Care

klorane-homespa

The positive thing about staying home is that we can focus a little bit more on our skin and body care. I decided to focus more on my hair, try out new hair care products and get rid of the annoying dandruff that sometimes appears on my scalp.


Surely you have heard of double cleansing your face, but have you heard of double cleansing of the scalp and hair? I have been practicing this for several months now and I can say that I noticed a major difference in my hair after the first wash. Scalp hygiene is very important to me as I often struggle with dandruff, especially lately. Every time I wash my hair, I feel like I’ve been in a hair salon because of all the little rituals I have.

What is exactly double hair and scalp cleansing? This is essentially double shampooing, and for this purpose I use mild products that will not irritate the scalp. The first shampooing removes all the dirt, grease and residue of hair styling products, and the second shampooing actually cleans the scalp and nourishes the entire length of the hair.

Useful Sites and Apps That Everyone Should Know About

How many times have you had products in your collection that you don’t remember when you bought them or how old they are? Are you confused about the name of the ingredients and don’t know which ones are good and which to avoid? I provided a list of useful sites and apps that could benefit both men and women.


If you want to learn more about ingredients in skincare, I suggest the SkinCarisma page. You can search for a specific product there in the search bar and see all the ingredients within seconds. If a product is not available, you can find the ingredients yourself and enter them in the Cosmetic Analyzer section. In both cases, you will see all the ingredients and an explanation of what the ingredients are, how they affect the particular skin type and whether they are good or harmful. This site has helped me many times in choosing a product, it’s a real gem.

I believe that we have all at least once found ourselves in a situation where we do not remember how long we have a product and whether it is even safer to use. The CheckFresh page can check this for you. On this page, you can check the manufacturing date by batch number to determine how old a product is.

Gucci Bloom Hair Mist

guccibloom-hairmist

Gucci Bloom comes in a package that looks a lot like a classic perfume, but it’s a hair mist. It’s gentle and will not dry out your hair, it can be used several times throughout the day and the scent will not be overpowering. It’s best to use it on freshly washed and dried hair, because then the hair absorbs the scent best.


The fragrance consists of a combination of jasmine and tuberose to give a fresh and floral note, there is also an Indian Rangoon Creeper that gives a powdery note. At first it feels strong and sensual, but at the same time powdery and gentle. As it stays longer on the hair, the perfume turns into a floral powdery scent that simply exudes elegance.gucci-bloom-perfume

Gucci Bloom hair mist can also be used as a body perfume, which I often tend to do. I just like this powdery scent, and the big plus is that it doesn’t dry out my hair. If I apply it on freshly washed and dried hair, I can smell a gentle scent in my hair for a long time . Five hours after application – my hair still smells after this hair mist.
